Orange County, California hardcore band Stick to Your Guns have today released a new single, ‘Open Up My Head’, alongside an accompanying music video.
“To quote Malcolm X: ‘If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing,'” the band states. “This is incredibly true. In the age where massive multimedia corporations profit from disinformation, the search for truth becomes more and more important. This can be an exhaustive and painful process. It means challenging everything you think you know. We are going to need to find a way to connect with one another. A two-party system where both parties serve corporate interests is an authoritarian dictatorship. That’s just a fact. We live in a corporate dictatorship. We can do better than this. We need to do better than this. A better world is possible and we have nothing to lose but our chains. Solidarity with all working people across the world who are tired of being steamrolled.”
The band have also just announced a UK headline tour for November. The five-date run sees the band begin in London at Islington Academy on November 9th, before dates in Birmingham, Leeds, Glasgow, ending at Bristol’s Thekla on November November 13th.
